NOSE & PALATE: A complex rich, ripe wine with a deep vibrant ruby colour. Lingering blueberry fruit is enhanced by nuances of spice. An elegant backdrop of well-structured, integrated oak adds intensity and length to the wine.
WOOD MATURATION: 70% of the wine was matured in new oak (80% French and 20% American). The remainder was aged in 2nd fill barrels. A maturation period of 14 months contributed the desired wood aromas and flavours which blend beautifully with the pronounced varietal, terroir-specific character of the wine.
Minimal intervention in the cellar. Frequent pump-overs were done on must during alcoholic fermentation to ensure good colour and tannin extraction. A 6-week maceration period prolonged the extraction process.
